Drunken couple arrested after bayonet found in baby stroller in Ypsilanti

Ypsilanti police arrested a drunken couple early this morning after they were pushing a baby stroller with two young boys, open containers of alcohol and a bayonet inside, a police news release said.

According to the release, officers responded to the 500 block of Perry Street about 1:30 a.m. after the woman attempted to grab a bicycle off someone’s porch.

Security guards had been watching the couple and detained the woman, the release said. Officers found the woman’s sons, ages 1 and 4, in the stroller – along with the open containers and a “double-edged bayonet,” the release said.

Police said both were highly intoxicated and a “long way” from their residence.

The 30-year-old woman and 52-year-old man, both from Ypsilanti Township, were taken into custody. The woman was taken to a local hospital to be checked out after she complained of abdominal pain, the release said. The children were turned over to a relative who lives nearby, the release said.

It’s unclear what charges may be filed in the case. Ypsilanti police officials could not be reached for comment this morning.
